Never Enough Wool
We would like to know who stole October. And if we aren’t careful, November will be over and that only
leaves December until the new year. And
speaking of the new year, are you planning any resolutions for 2015? We haven’t decided totally, but we are
contemplating something involving a map and mileage markers.
So what’s new at the
wool shop? We have some lovely project
books and project bags. Ball winders
and swifts. Sock yarn from Lang. Last but not least, we are publishing a 2015
calendar. Look for its arrival the week
of November 10! 12 original patterns,
and not a one of them a scarf!
Remember that December
is our “catch your breath” month here at the shop. We won’t be starting any new classes, and those dedicated class
times will become “open knitting” times.
The kettle is on, sometimes there are goodies, and most of all – peace
and quiet, without your children, pets, husbands, laundry, housework, dishes …
You get the idea.
Looking towards the
new year finds us contemplating a class line-up going forward. We have requests for entrelac, fair isle,
fisherman knits … We are always open to suggestions, so don’t be shy.
We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest
possible rates. In
order to do so, we
ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop. In addition, we offer
class discounts to our
note that if you are
not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome
continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.
You must register for
your class before class time. Class
times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00
pm. Other times may be arranged to
suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays. Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space
Cowl – November – As
the holiday gift-giving season closes in, our thoughts turn to projects which
can be completed quickly but still look intricate and difficult. This Linen Stitch Cowl is the answer – you
could even make one for yourself if you so desired! There’s plenty of time.
Classes will be held on Tuesdays, beginning November 4, from 1-3:00 pm
or 7-9:00 pm. Cost: $25 plus materials.
Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again! An afghan worked in multi-coloured
techniques to expand your knitting horizons.
This class will be meeting once a month, beginning January 9, 2015, at
10:30 am. The plan will be to meet and
start the panel in question and then for homework, finish the panel to be ready
for the next month. There are ten
colour panels, a class to discuss seaming, and another class to discuss the
borders. Cost is $25, plus materials
Fisherman Knit Vest
– as seen in Knitting
Traditions Spring 2014. We will be
casting on in January, 2015, and working until complete. Barb and Carol have started the samples, and
are totally entranced. Cost is $25.00
plus materials (400g aran or worsted weight –Aran with Wool works
fabulously!). We anticipate that this
project will take approximately 6-8 weeks to complete.
Entrelac Scarf – Learn entrelac by making a beautiful
scarf. Knit in tiers, the scarf looks
as though woven. Using a long-colour
repeat yarn, your scarf will be the envy of your friends. Class begins Tuesday, February 3, at either
1:00 or 7:00 pm, and continuing through the month of February. Cost:
$25.00 plus materials (approx. 200g wool and needles).
Stitch: Every Wednesday afternoon,
from 1 until
3. Bring your
latest project and join
us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter. Everyone is welcome!
Stitching: Every Saturday, from 2
until 4. What
better way to spend a Saturday
afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some
Night: Every Thursday, from 7
until 9. Although
it’s called Knitting Night,
crocheters are encouraged and welcomed.
There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy
goodies for all.
